it's a great show tonight. let's get to what people are talking about. guys, it is fashion week here in new york city. can you feel the energy? can you feel the -- [ cheers and applause ] excitement? it is fashion week, and i saw that during one interview, kendall jenner made the comment that hillary clinton might look good in a jumpsuit. [ light laughter ] and hillary said, "well, hopefully they never find those e-mails, or it's going to be an orange jumpsuit." [ laughter and applause ] >> steve: hey! actually, yesterday hillary said that the media coverage of her campaign is frustrating, and that donald trump's campaign is being treated more favorably than hers. then cnn said, "shh, trump's about to tweet something." [ laughter and applause ] "what were you saying?" get this now. now there's a conspiracy theory making the rounds online that hillary clinton was being fed answers through an earpiece during her town hall last week.
hillary said, "i promise you it wasn't an earpiece or my name isn't -- hillary -- hillary -- [ laughter ] clinton. hillary clinton." lights out! meanwhile, trump was under fire this week for saying he was against the iraq war, even though he seemed to say the exact opposite a decade ago. a reporter tried to confront him about it yesterday, and i don't think he got the answer he was hoping for. check this video out. >> days after the invasion actually happened in 2 2003 -- march of 2003, you said that it looked like a a tremendous success from a a military standpoint? do you still stand by those comments? >> you know what that meant.

[ light laughter ] >> when you got dressed this morning, were you thinking in your head, "this is the sexiest david that's coming out today, this is the david that i always wanted to be?" >> uh, no. i don't think that entered my mind. [ laughter ] >> so, explain the socks to me, the height of the socks specifically. just that they're gym socks.
